This  is  a  digital  copy  of  a  book  that  was  preserved  for  generations  on  library  shelves  before  it  was  carefully  scanned  by  Google  as  part  of  a  project 

to  make  the  world's  books  discoverable  online. 

It  has  survived  long  enough  for  the  copyright  to  expire  and  the  book  to  enter  the  public  domain.  A  public  domain  book  is  one  that  was  never  subject 

to  copyright  or  whose  legal  copyright  term  has  expired.  Whether  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  may  vary  country  to  country.  Public  domain  books 

are  our  gateways  to  the  past,  representing  a  wealth  of  history,  culture  and  knowledge  that's  often  difficult  to  discover. 

Marks,  notations  and  other  maiginalia  present  in  the  original  volume  will  appear  in  this  file  -  a  reminder  of  this  book's  long  journey  from  the 

publisher  to  a  library  and  finally  to  you.

because  we  believe  a  book  is  in  the  public  domain  for  users  in  the  United  States,  that  the  work  is  also  in  the  public  domain  for  users  in  other 
countries.  Whether  a  book  is  still  in  copyright  varies  from  country  to  country,  and  we  can't  offer  guidance  on  whether  any  specific  use  of

AiTOTHZB  and  third  Section  of  the  EihiHtion  is  introdnoed  by  this  Class,  which  includea  the  Manuractnre  of 
Cotton.  ThisSection  cuntemplatcs  those  results  uf  human  industry  whidi  natumlly  succeed  to  the  Sections  of 
Raw  Hateri&ls  »nd  Machiaery.  The  substance  to  bo  operated  upon  having  been  considered,  together  with  llie 
mccluuiiaJ  aaBistonoe  neoenary  to  orry  forward  the  proccasea  through  which  it  has  to  pass  in  its  progress 
fnim  the  raw  material  to  the  manufactured  article,  it  now  becomes  an  interesting  study  to  turn  attention  to 
the  product  of  the  industry  occupied  in  the  preceding  departmcnta.  While  objects  in  the  first  Section  may  be 
nr/arded  as  in  a  passive  or  invparatory  Btat«,  objects  in  the  second  must  be  considered  in  an  active,  and  in  the 
third  in  a  complete  condition,  awaiting  only  their  application  to  the  purposes  of  life.  This  condition  generally 
rrodeis  the  articles  contuned  within  tiiie  Section  less  attractive  than  in  the  preceding  and  succeeding  Sections. 
Rij^tly  viewed,  however,  objects  in  this  Section  must  receive  a  degree  of  attentive  consideration  not  inferior  to 
(hat  bestowed  on  the  furmrr.  The  manufactured  article  may  and  should  be  rej^arded  as  the  test  of  the  pei^ 
fection,  Gnrt,  of  the  raw  material  conatituting  its  foundation,  and,  secondly,  of  the  mechanical  arrangements 
co-oneralivc  in  its  pruduction.  If  the  raw  material  has  been  wanting  in  any  of  the  [noperties  for  which  it  ia 
emiiloyod  in  the  preparation,  or  if  the  manufacturing  machinery  has  been  defective  m  operation,  the  manu- 
bctored  article  offers,  in  many  cases,  certain  evidence  of  these  facts.  And,  conversely,  the  purity  and  perfect 
fitnen  of  the  material,  with  a  state  of  efficiency  in  the  manufacturing  machinery,  combine  to  produce  a  certain 
superiority  in  the  manufacture  which  may  bo  generally -ascerttuned  upon  its  mreful  examination.

machinery,  &c.,  for  the  manufacture  of  this  material,  and  about  the  same  amount  in  wages  to  the  |)er8on8 
directly  employed  in  the  factories,  of  whom  the  total  number  is  taken  at  upwards  of  half  a  million,  exclusive 
of  80,000  or  90,000  engineers  and  machinists  immediately  connected  with  the  manufacture.  The  total  annual 
value  of  the  manufactured  material  has  been  approximatively  represented  at  about  thirty-six  millions  sterling. 
The  effect  on  the  populaticm  of  the  manufacturing  districts  has  not  been  less  surprising. 

Although,  therefore,  little  of  external  interest  appears  to  belong  to  a  bundle  of  cotton-yam  or  a  piece  of 
calico,  the  study  of  its  manufacture,  exclusive  of  the  exquisite  mechanism  by  which  it  is  operated  upon,  and 
the  statistical  facts  which  link  themselves  with  its  history,  can  never  be  unptofitable.  The  moral  considerations 
connected  with  cotton  factories  form  a  subject  of  even  higher  interest  and  importance. — R.  £.

and  in  the  patent  mode  by  which  this  is  accomplished  on 
one  or  both  sides.  The  great  sofkness  of  tne  cotton 
surface  adepts  it  peculiarly  for  young  children.  The 
advantages  of  cotton  towelling  have  been  long  appre- 
ciated in  the  Eastern  baths.  The  linen  nap  or  plush 
affords  equal  absorbency,  and  produces  a  sharper  feeling 
to  the  skin,  whilst  the  retaining  of  the  cottnn  groimd 
gives  a  pliancy  of  material  which  has  long  been  a  deside- 
ratum in  towelling  with  a  sharp  rough  surface.  Produced 
by  ''  Holt's  Bfttent."  The  texture  is  applicable  to  shawls,

genendly  lued  by  the  Chinese  in  1316.  Ck>tton 
cloth  WM  brooght  to  London  in  1590,  from  Benin;  and 
it  was  aaoortained  about  a  century  previouB,  to  have  been 
the  diief  article  of  drefls  among  the  Mexicans.  Its  manu- 
CKtoze  was  originally  brought  to  Europe  by  the  Moors  of 
Spain;  but  it  was  not  till  after  the  establishment  of  their 
oofnmaroe  with  India,  that  the  Dutoh  began  to  fabricate 
cotton  cloths  at  home.  The  Protestants,  driyen  by  perse- 
eotion  from  the  Netherlands,  brought  this  manufacture 
to  Kngfand  in  the  reign  of  Queen  Elizabeth. 

Oar  ordinary  cotton  fiibrics  haye  their  counterpart  in 
tbe  original  manufactures  of  India;  and  the  native  mus- 
lins of  Dacca  in  Bengal  still  rival  the  productions  of  the 
azquinte  machinery  of  England.  The  former  have  ob- 
tained their  superiority  from  the  skill  acquired  by  manual 
dazlarity  transmitted  through  a  long  lapse  of  ages;  the 
latter,  firom  that  of  little  more  than  half  a  century  of  well- 
axardaed  merhaniral  ingenuity.  The  various  kinds  of 
cotton  fidirics  brought  from  India,  were  originally  distin- 
gnialfted  by  the  names  of  the  places  where  they  were  made ; 
as,  jaconets,  mullmuls,  betelles,  tarlatans,  tanjeebs, 
bvkea,  terridams,  doreas,  &c.  Imitations  of  these  by 
oar  manufactursrs  retain  their  names ;  and  additions 
and  changes  are  made  according  to  the  improvemente  in- 

Tbe  two  great  emporiums  of  the  cotton  manufacture 
are  Manrheater  and  Glasgow;  the  former  having  Bolton 
for  its  aasiBtant,  in  the  production  of  muslins  and  the 
finer  sort  of  goods;  and  the  latter.  Paisley.  Both  these 
dties  have  risen,  in  consequence  of  the  wealth  produced 
by  tbair  manufactures,  from  the  position  of  third-rate 
towns,  and  known  only  by  historical  associations,  to  the 

noik  of  being  aaoond  in  iba  ^^afgiam,  and  bonomabla

Printed  calicoes,  or  prints,  at  first  the  imitations  of  thoaa 
of  India,  are  now  produced  in  patterns  of  an  indefinite 
variety  every  year.  Calicoes  are  frequently  impregnated 
with  a  made  paste  of  spoiled  flour  called  "  the  dressing," 
which  renders  it  difficult  to  ascertain  their  quality.  This 
dressing  is  given  merely  to  improve  their  appearance. 

The  peculiar  style  of  printed  calico,  called  chintz,  ori- 
ginally from  India,  and  in  which  the  figures  are  at  least 
of  five  different  colours,  impressed  upon  a  white  or 
coloured  ground,  are  now  made  by  our  own  manufac- 
turers with  great  success,  aa  to  beMity  of  design  and 
richness  of  colour.  The  invention  and  the  drawing  of 
patterns  for  printing  alone  gives  employment  to  artists 
of  a  peculiar  class;  and  the  variety  produced  is  immense, 
in  order  to  satisfy  the  perpetual  demand  for  change  pro- 
duced by  fashion. 

It  is  to  the  production  of  fine  muslins,  that  the  chief 
efforte  of  our  cotton  manufacturers  have  been  directed, 
with  a  view  to  excel  the  wonderfully  delicate  and  light 
fabrics  of  India.  It  is  stated  that  the  turbans  of  some 
of  the  rich  Mohammedans  at  Delhi  were  made  of  muslin 
so  fine  that  thirty  ells  did  not  weigh  four  ounces;  and 
that  some  of  their  broad  webs  might  be  drawn  through  a 
ring  of  moderate  size,  the  tissue  being  so  exquisite  that 
it  seemed  more  like  the  work  of  insects  than  of  men,  re- 
sembling in  the  language  of  Elastem  hyperbole,  "the 
woven  wind.'*  The  threads  of  a  specimen  of  this  manu- 
facture in  the  Museum  of  the  East  India  Company,  when 
examined  with  the  microscope,  were  found  though  spun 
only  by  the  distaff  and  spindle,  to  sxirpass  our  machine- 
made  muslin  in  fineness,  but  to  be  inferior  in  regularity. 
Twenty  yards  of  the  yam  of  which  this  muslin  was  made 
weighed  only  a  grain;  and  a  pound  of  it  would  have

reached  the  length  of  115  miles.  In  England  yam  has 
been  spun  so  fine,  that  a  pound  would  extend  to  167 
miles  in  length;  but  this  could  not  be  woven  by  our 
machinery.  The  price  of  the  Dacca  muslin  has  been,  when 
brought  to  this  country,  from  10  to  IQ  guineas  per  yard. 
By  the  employment  of  machinery,  and  the  division  of 
labour,  we  are  enabled  to  produce  muslin  much  cheaper 
than  the  Hindoos,  and  even  of  finer  texture;  but  their 
muslin  is  richer,  softer,  and  more  durable,  and  still 
maintains  its  reputation.  The  same  may  be.said  of  their 
calicoes,  ginghams,  and  chintsses,  which  form  the  staple 
conmiodity  of  the  Circars.  Though  nearly  driven  out  of 
the  European  markets  by  cheap  and  successful  imitations, 
they  are  still  preferred  in  the  East,  where  the  merchants 
consider  that  they  are  able  to  distinguish  by  the  touch, 
and  even  by  the  smell,  the  genuine  productions  of  the 
Indian  loom. 

Varieties  of  muslin  are  jaconet,  a  light  kind  of  muslin, 
open  and  soft,  but  stouter  than  the  mull :  the  name  is 
supposed  to  be  a  corruption  of  Jaghemout,  the  place 
where  they  were  made;  it  is  used  for  dresses,  neckcloths, 
'ftc«  Nainsook  is  a  thicker  sort  of  jaconet,  plain  and 
striped.  Mull  muslin  is  a  very  thin  and  soft  kind,  used 
for  dresses,  trimmings,  &c.  Seerhand  is  between  nain- 
sook and  mull,  and  particularly  adapted  for  dresses, 
retaining  its  clearness  after  washing.  Buke  muslin  is  a 
plain  clear  kind,  woven  for  working  in  the  tambour. 
Foundation  muslin  is  open-worked,  used  for  stiffening 
dresses  and  bonnets.  Leno  is  thinner  and  clearer  than 
buke  muslin;  a  sort  of  cotton  gauze,  used  for  window 
blinds.  Cambric  Tnimlin  ig  an  imitation  of  cambric,  a 
linen  fabric;  it  is  sometimes  glazed,  white  and  coloured 
for  linings,  and  twilled,  figured,  striped,  or  corded.  Cord 
and  fancy  checks,  are  cambric  muslins  with  stripes  and 
cords  placed  chequer-wise,  by  thick  threads  being  intro- 
duced into  the  warp  or  weft.  Figured  muslins  are 
wrought  in  the  loom  to  imitate  the  tamboured  muslins, 
which  are  embroidered  by  hand  on  the  tambour.  Glasgow 
is  the  chief  seat  of  the  tamboured  muslins.  Of  cotton 
cambric  there  are  two  kinds;  that  used  for  dresses,  white 
or  printed,  made  chiefly  in  Lancashire ;  and  that  used  for 
the  same  purposes  as  French  cambric,  made  chiefly  in 

Cotton  damasks,  huckabacksy  and  diapers,  are  made  in 
imitation  of  articles  of  the  same  name  in  linen;  they  are 
cheaper,  but  less  durable  in  fabric  and  in  whiteness. 
Cotton  ticks  are  plain  and  twilled,  in  imitation  of  linen 
ticks;  and  there  is  a  kind  called  union  tick,  composed  of 
linen  and  cotton.  Gingham  is  a  thin  chequered  cotton. 
Coimterpanes,  a  oomipiion  of  counterpoint,  have  small 

protuberances  arranged  according  to  various  patterns. 
ICarseilles  quilts  are  more  elegant  than  the  former;  it  is 
a  double  cloth,  with  a  third  of  softer  material  between, 
kept  in  its  place  by  the  quilting  done  in  the  loom.  Cotton 
quilting  is  made  for  waistcoat-pieces,  resembling  diaper. 
Jean  is  a  twilled  cotton,  both  striped  and  white.  Satin 
jeans  are  woven  like  satin,  with  a  smooth  glossy  surface, 
and  are  used  for  stays,  shoes,  &c.  Dimity,  an  article  well 
known,  is  made  striped  or  plain;  now  much  used  for 
curtains.  Fustian  is  a  coarse  twilled  cotton,  compre- 
hending several  varieties,  as  corduroy,  jean,  velveret, 
velveteen,  thickset,  thickset  cord,  and  other  stout  cloths 
for  men's  wearing  apparel.  Common  plain  fustian  is 
called  pillow;  when  of  a  strong  twilled  texture,  and 
cropped  before  dyeing,  it  Ib  called  moleskin;  and  when 
shorn  after  dyeing,  it  is  called  beaverteen. 

Cotton  goods,  particularly  the  finer  fiU^rics,  as  muslins 
and  bobbin-net  laoe,  are  subjected  to  a  process  by  which 
the  downy  fibres  of  the  web  as  it  comes  from  the  loom 
are  removed,  and  the  fabric  is  presented  in  a  more 
finished  state  of  manufacture.  This  process  formerly 
consisted  in  passing  the  web  in  its  whole  width  rapidly 
over  and  near  to  the  upper  surface  of  a  semi-cylindrical 
piece  of  red-hot  iron  placed  horizontally,  by  which  the 
fibres  projecting  from  the  surface  were  consumed  in  a 
moment,  while  the  fabric  itself  passed  unhurt  over  the 
burning  mass.  Had  the  machinery  by  which  this  was 
effected  been  suddenly  stopped  before  Uie  web  was  raised 
from  its  perilous  position,  the  whole  would  have  been 
enveloped  in  flames. 

This  method  of  singeing  muslin,  which  was  practised 
at  Glasgow  and  in  Lancashire,  has  been  in  some  factories 
superseded  by  Hall's  patent  process,  which  consists  in 
the  application  of  gas  to  effect  the  same  purpose  as  the 
red-hot  iron.  The  latter  is  replaced  by  a  tube  similarly 
placed,  and  perforated  in  its  upper  side  with  niunerous 
small  holes  as  jets  through  which  the  gas  passes.  When 
the  gas  is  ignited,  the  muslin  is  passed  rapidly  over  the 
flame  in  a  manner  similar  to  that  already  mentioned. 
Improvements  were  introduced  into  this  process  by  the 
patentee,  by  which  a  draught  of  air  is  created  over  the 
series  of  jets  when  acting  as  burners;  and  the  web  being 
then  rapidly  passed  over  these  burners,  the  air  forces 
the  flame  of  the  gas  through  the  interstices  of  the  fabric, 
and  all  the  loose  and  projecting  fibres  of  the  thread  com- 
posing the  web  are  instantaneously  consumed  as  before, 
without  in  the  least  injuring  its  substance  or  texture. 
The  application  of  this  process  creates  the  distinction 
between  gassed  and  ungassed  goods. — R.  W.]

GaOeiy,  and  on  the  Ground  FioOT,  on  the  left  baud,  or  South  ride  (proceeding  westward),  near  tlie  western 
terminalioii  of  the  Nave.  In  the  latter  &re  arranged  the  cloths,  worsted  slpeca,  and  mohair  goods ;  shawls,  &o., 
■n  diaftayed  in  the  Gallery,  and  extend  through  Areaa  10  to  17.  From  the  delicacy  of  their  nature  sod 
cokmn  they  are  incloeed  in  glnsa  caais,  the  artistic  arrangement  of  which  gives  a  pleasing  character  to  this  part 
of  the  Gallery. 

The  gmt  manufacturing  localities  for  goods  contained  in  these  Classes  are  Chippenham,  Frome,  and  Brad- 
ford, in  Willi ;  Wootton-nnder  Edge,  Stroud,  Leeds,  Huddersficld,  and  Halifai ;  Galashiels,  Hawick,  and 
Selkirk,  are  localities  in  which  particular  descriptions  of  wool  and  narrow  clothe  are  produced.  Blankets  are 
manufacture  chiefly  at  Witney,  Dewsbury,  and  Oakhamplon.  Flarmel  is  produced  in  large  quantities  in  the 
Principality,  also  at  Hocbdale  and  Stroud.  Tartans  form  a  charBcCeriatic  manufacture  of  several  northern 
towitt.  But  the  town  of  liradford  presents  the  most  conspicuous  example  of  a  locality  deriving  a  lar^  share 
of  proqierily  from  the  production  of  a  peculiar  description  of  goods — the  worsted  stuff  goods.  In  1801,  thia 
town  had  a  popalaticn  of  about  6,400,  which,  in  thirty  years,  had  multiplied  to  upwards  of  23,000,  and  ba» 
aiDoe  increased  even  more  rapidly.  This  ia  duo,  in  a  great  measure,  to  the  extraordinary  success  which  haa 
altmded  the  manufacture  of  miied  fabrics,  and  especially  of  worsted  stuff  goods.  The  spinning  of  worsted  yam 
alone  employs  many  extensive  factories,  which  supply  others  equally  extensive  with  material  for  weaving  the 
goods  by  power-looms.  A  very  large  population,  not  under  9,000  or  10,000,  is  now  employed  in  these  fac- 
Ifwi**,  or  in  eonneclinn  with  them.  Ijitterly  the  alpaca  manufacture  baa  risen  into  great  imj«rt«n«e,  and  with 
the  mannfacture  of  fabrics  made  of  wool  and  cotton,  and  of  wool  and  silk,  constitutes  the  staple  industry  of  this 

Tlte  woollen  manufacture  frenerally  haa  for  a  long  period  been  regarded  as  one  of  the  most  important 
laaDcbcs  of  our  national  industry,  and  though  less  extensive  than  that  of  cotton,  still  holds  a  highly  influential 
pMiiion,  and  furnishes  tbc  means  of  support  to  many  thousands  of  our  countrymen.  It  has  been  computed 
that  not  fewer  than  312,500  people  are  cmployeil  on  the  whole  in  this  oianufacture,  which  has  been  calculated 
to  amount  to  the  anniml  value  of  about  25,0O0,00W.  The  introduction  of  new  materials  cither  for  use  atone, 
or  JD  cornbinalion,  has  at  tinies  given  an  extraordinary  impuUe  to  the  manufacture,  and  the  character  of  the 
(piods  pmdtieed  has  undergone  several  important  modifications.  The  manufacture  largely  carried  on  at 
|)ewibary,  in  Yorkshire,  of  a  coarse  cloth  from  woollen  rags,  is  very  interesting.  The  rags  are  torn  up  by 
machinery,  and  their  fibrous  material  is  entirely  separated ;  it  is  then  spun  in  low  numbers,  an<l  made  into  a 
o«rse  description  of  cloth  tiiicd  for  beize,  lablo-cloths,  A-c.  The  reproduction  of  a  woven  fabric,  from  material 
natil  recently  regarded  as  entirely  waste  and  uaclcai  for  such  purposes,  is  a  striking  illustration  of  the  adaptive 
inganaity  of  the  preaent  day.— R.  E,

[The  alpaca  is  an  animal  of  the  Llama  tribe,  inhabit- 
ing the  mountain-region  of  Peru.  The  wool  or  hair  is  of 
various  shades  of  black,  white,  grey,  brown,  &c.,  and  is 
remarkable  for  brightness  and  lustre,  great  length  of 
staple,  and  extreme  softness.  This  wool  was  brought 
into  general  use  in  this  country  about  16  yeai^  ago  by 
the  present  exhibitor.  Since  that  time  the  various  ob- 
stacles in  the  way  of  its  successful  working  have  been 
quite  overcome,  and  the  alpaca  manufacture  now  ranks 
as  one  of  the  most  important  branches  of  the  Bradford 
worsted  stuff  trade.  The  articles  produced  from  alpaca 
in  combination  with  silk  are  especially  noticeable  for  their 
softness  and  brilliancy.  The  bulk  of  the  goods,  however, 
are  made  with  cotton  warp,  and  when  dyed  and  finished 
approach  in  lustre  very  nearly  to  silk.  The  following  is 
the  average  yearly  importation  of  alpaca  wool  into  England 
since  its  first  introduction,  viz. :  from  1836  to  1840,  7,000 
bales  per  annum;  from  1841  to  1845,  13,000  bales  per 
annum;  from  1846  to  1850,  20,000  bales  per  annum.  It 
is  generally  believed  that  this  last  amount  is  the  utmost 
extent  of  production  in  Peru. 

The  animal  has  not  hitherto  been  very  extensively 
cultivated  in  this  country.  H.  R.  H.  Prince  Albert  has 
a  small  quantity  at  Windsor  Park,  and  the  Earl  of  Derby 
has  a  flock  of  about  60  at  Knowsley.  A  specimen  of  Lord 
Derb/s  growth  is  now  exhibited  by  Mr.  Salt.  Consider- 
able difficulties  have  arisen  in  the  rearing  of  these  animi^lff 
in  England;  but  when  more  correct  information  is  obtained 
as  to  their  habits  in  their  native  district,  these  will  most 
probably  be  overcome.  Attempts  are  just  now  being 
made  to  introduce  the  alpaca  into  our  Australian  colonies, 
where  the  climate,  from  its  great  dryness,  is  believed  to 
be  congenial  for  its  successful  naturalization. 

Mohair  or  goat's  wool  is  produced  exclusively  in  Asia 
Minor.  In  its  raw  state  it  is  superior  in  lustre  to  alpaca, 
and  is  wrought  into  many  beautiful  fabrics.  The  importa- 
tion of  this  article  has  increased  from  5,621  bales  in 
1841,  to  12,884  bales  in  1850.  Mohair  yam  is  largely 
exported  to  the  Continent,  where  it  has  superseded  the 
yam  formerly  spun  in  Turkey,  and  is  there  manufactured 
into  Utrecht  velvet  for  hangings,  furniture,  lining  of 
carriages,  &c.,  a  branch  of  trade  which  is  now  gaining 
groimd  extensively  in  this  coimtry. 

Russian  Donsky  fleece  wool  is  of  a  very  coarse  descrip- 
tion, and  was  first  combed  and  brought  into  use  in  the 
worsted  trade  about  20  years  ago  by  the  present  exhibitor.

exhibited  are  of  the  finest  deecription  of  worsted  goods 
ever  manufactured. 

[The  following  details  will  convey  some  idea  of  the 
progress  and  extent  of  the  worsted  stuff  trade.  Messrs. 
J.  Rand  &  Sons'  factory  was  built  in  1803,  and  was  the 
third  erected  in  Bradford.  The  population  t>f  the  town 
and  neighbourhood  was  then  about  6,500;  it  is  now 
estimated  at  00,000.  There  are  at  present  in  Yorkshirs 
(principally  in  the  parishes  of  Bradford,  Halifax,  Kei^iley, 
and  Bingley),  418  worsted  factories,  with  746,281  spindles, 
30,856  power-looms,  and  employing  70,905  workpeople. 
Taking  the  worsted  and  woollen  manufactures  together, 
the  increase  during  the  last  16  years  has  been,  in  the 
number  of  factories  51  per  cent. ;  in  the  number  of  hands 
employed,  116  per  cent. — O.  T.]

Flax,  produced  b^  the  new  patent  process  of  Mr.  P, 
Claussen,  viz.,  flax  in  the  straw,  showing  on  the  same 
stems  the  fibre  both  imprepared  and  prepared,  and  also 
unbleached,  bleached,  and  dyed  various  colours;  carded 
flax-fibre,  imbleached,  bleached,  and  dyed;  heckled  flax- 
fibre,  long  flax-fibre,  unbleached  and  bleached. 

Yams,  spun  from  the  above  flax,  alone,  and  mixed  with 
cotton,  wool,  and  silk. 

[To  the  present  time  it  has  been  considered  impossible 
to  apply  existing  cotton  machinery  to  the  manufacture  of 
flax.  Mr.  P.  Claussen  considers  that  this  difficulty  now 
no  longer  exists,  and  that  by  processes  adopted  by  him,  it 
is  possible  to  prepare  a  kind  of  "cotton"  from  flax, 
suitable  for  a  large  niunber  of  manufacturing  purposes, 
and  capable  of  being  spun  in  tolerably  high  numbers. 
A  peculiar  part  of  Mr.  Claussen*s  patent  is  the  bleaching 
of  flax  and  its  disintegration,  which  is  said  to  be  efiected

298  Stewart,  Robert,  Paisley — Proprietor  ft  Producer. 
Hutchison,  Thomas,  Paisley — Inventor  and  Patentee. 

Machine  for  inventing  and  displaying  patterns  in  stripes, 
cheques,  and  tartans,  by  means  of  uiding  mirrors  and 
coloured  glass,  suitable  for  manufacturOTS  of  textile 
fabrics,  whether  in  cotton,  woollen,  silk,  or  linen,  or  a 
combination  of  two  or  more  of  these  materials. 

The  advantages  of  this  machine  are — the  Badlity  with 
which  any  pattern,  or  idea  of  a  pattern,  may  be  set  up 
and  displayed — the  variety  of  designs  it  can  produee— 
and  the  ease  and  simplicity  of  accomplishing  them.  It  is 
not  at  all  necessary  to  paint  the  pattern  on  paper,  after 
viewing  it  through  the  mirrors,  as  the  scales  attached 
show  at  once  the  required  number  of  threads  of  each 
colour,  and  how  many  repeats  are  necessary  for  the 
breadth  of  the  web,  and  it  displays  at  once,  not  only  the 
repeat,  but  the  whole  breadth,  and  a  considerable  portion 
of  the  length  of  the  cloth  at  one  view. 

By  this  invention,  the  precise  effect  of  a  pattern  may  be 
produced,  in  the  course  of  a  few  xninutetB,  without  any 
expense,  multiplied  to  any  extent,  and  it  may  be  enlai^ged 
or  diminished  at  pleasure.  The  chief  novelty,  however, 
of  this  machine,  which  is  exhibited  for  its  simpUoity  and 
the  ease  of  its  adaptation,  is,  that  the  precise  effect  of  the 
cloth  in  a  finished  state  is  accurately  represented,  the 
crisp  transparent  effect  of  a  silk  fabric  being  truly  giveOy 
as  well  as  the  soft  and  more  opaque  effect  of  a  woollen 

This  invention  is  new  in  principle,  being  a  novel  i^mli- 
cation  of  coloured  glass  to  useful  and  essentially  practical

Two  brocaded  dresses,  manufactured  by  T.  Gregoir 
and  Brothers,  Shelf,  near  Halifax,  Yorkshire.  The  weft 
of  the  Cashmere  wool  shorn  from  the  goats  kept  by 
H.R.H.  Prince  Albert,  in  Windsor  P&rk.  The  warp  is  <^ 

Two  shawls  and  a  specimen  of  coarse  cloth  manufiM^- 
tured  by  J.  Haley  and  Son,  Bramley,  near  Leeds.  The 
whole  of  the  material  is  of  the  Casnmere  wool  as  above 

The  Cashmere  goat's  wool,  of  which  these  artioles  are 
manufactiu^  consists  of  two  distinct  materials  called 
wool  and  kemp.  The  wool  is  beautifully  rich  and  soft  to 
the  touch,  and  is  probably  superior  in  this  ren>ect  to  the 
finest  continental  lamb's  wool,  and  eqiael  to  the  richness 
of  the  Thibet  wool.  It  is  also  divisible  into  qualities. 
The  kemp  presents  the  appearance  of  a  course  rough  hair, 
sudi  as  is  avoided  by  the  manufacturer  in  all  purchases 
of  wools,  deteriorating  as  it  does  the  appearance  of  even 
common  fabrics  by  its  inferiority  and  harshness. 

1^  two  wools,  as  shorn  from  the  goat,  are  closely  in- 
termingled, and  present  the  appearance  of  coarse  hairy 
wool  of  a  very  low  character ;  but  a  minute  inspection 
shows  that  part  of  it  is  of  a  very  fine  quality.  In  order 
to  separate  this  fine  quality  from  the  coarse,  it  is  ne- 
cessary to  do  so  fibre  by  fibre;  and  this  has  to  bo  effected 
entirely  by  hand,  no  machinery  having  as  yet  been  applied 
to  this  purpose.  The  process  is  both  difficult  and  tedious ; 
one  person  not  being  able  to  separate  more  than  half  an 
ounce  in  twelve  hours. 

After  the  separation  of  the  qualities,  it  is  desirable 
further  to  divide  it,  in  order  to  make  a  warp  yam  for 
fabrics  like  the  shawls;  but  this  was  impossible  in  the 
present  instance,  owing  to  the  small  quantity  producod, 
otherwise  the  fabric  would  have  been  much  finer.  In  the 
dresses  this  result  has  been  achieved,  because  the  warp  i& 
of  silk,  and  the  quantity  required  for  the  weft  was  there- 
fore not  so  great  in  proportion. 

The  8i>ecimen  of  coarse  cloth  is  manufactured  entirely 
of  the  coarse  hairs  or  kemp  after  it  is  assorted  from  the 
finer  material  of  the  wool.  In  a  general  way  this  is  con- 
sidered worthless.

Thib  ClaM  ippeftM  u  the  representative  of  the  silk  and  velvet  manufactures  of  the  United  Kingdom ;  tho 
raw  malerisl  of  tho  manufacture  being  far  more  costly  than  in  the  two  prectidiDg  instances  of  cotton  and 
wonllen.  The  articles  included  by  this  Clasa  partako,  on  the  whole,  more  of  the  character  of  products  of 
luxury.  The  beautiful  capabilities  of  the  fibre  for  textile  purjMisca,  sud  its  delicate  applicability  to  the  pur- 
pi»e»  of  the  dj-er,  render  silk  an  interesting  and  attractive  manufacture.  The  same  qualities  also  combine  to 
uffer  it  as  an  admirable  material  for  the  display  of  ta3t«  and  oniamcnt.  llic  number  of  Exhibitors  rather 
eioeeds  tliat  of  those  in  cotton,  hut  falls  far  below  the  number  exhibiting  in  woollen  and  worsted.  Manu- 
faclorera  are  the  priDcijial  Exhibitors ;  but  works  executed  by  private  hand,  and  articles  exhibited  severally 
by  iiTOiirietora,  have  also  a  place  in  this  Class. 

The  jubdivisions  of  the  Class  are  as  follow ; — A.  Includes  Silk  Yams,  such  as  fipun.  Thrown,  and  Sewing 
Silks ;  B.  Plain  Silks  of  every  kind ;  C.  Fancy  Bilks,  as  Shot,  Figured,  Embroidered,  &c. ;  I),  Velvets,  Flain 
mod  Figured  ;  E.  Gauzes  and  Crapes ;  F.  Plain  Ribbons ;  and  Q.  Fancy  Itihinns. 

The  articles  in  the  Class  are  to  be  found  in  the  Building  in  the  South  and  Transept  Galleries,  where 
tticy  are  cont«ned  in  plass  cases.  In  this  position  they  offer  a  favourable  opjertimity  for  contrast  with  thoM 
uf  the  principal  foreign  silk-producing  localities,  the  coutributions  of  which  are  msplayod  in  the  Central 
South  Uallerj-,  on  the  opposite  side  of  the  Transept. 

The  principal  localities  from  which  articles  have  hjen  received  have  been  tho  metropolis  (Rpital fields), 
Macclesfield,  Leek,  Halifax,  Derby,  Manchester,  Leeds,  and  Coventry.  Hut  many  articles  are  exhibited  which 
have  ti'it  Nfn  derived  directly  from  llie  locality  occupied  by  the  Rxbibilor,  but  from  others  not  enumerated.

Class  13.— SILK  AND  VELVET. 
South  Tbansbft  Gallebt. 

[To  the  Chinese  we  owe  the  knowledge  of  the  manu- 
facture of  Bilk  J  but  its  origin,  even  with  them,  ia  hid  in 
remote  antiquity.  Silk  was  brought  overland  from  China 
to  Rome,  within  a  century  after  Alexander  had  opened 
the  passage  to  India.  In  the  reign  of  Aurelian,  a.d.  270, 
its  price  was  so  high,  that  a  pound  of  silk  was  sold  for  a 
pound  of  gold,  nearly  equal  to  50/.  About  a  century 
later  its  purchase  was  within  the  reach  of  all  classes  at 
Rome;  and  in  the  reign  of  Justinian,  a.d.  551,  by  the 
agency  of  two  Nestorian  monks,  who  brought  the  eggs  of 
the  silkworm  from  China,  the  manufacture  of  silk  vras 
introduced  into  Europe.  Venice  and  Lyons  afterwards 
took  the  lead  in  its  European  manu&cture  ;  and  the  re- 
vocation of  the  edict  of  Nantes  brought  the  first  silk 
weavers  to  Spitalfields  in  1685. 

Silk  is  still  imported  from  China,  and  it  excels  that  of 
every  other  country,  in  brilliancy  and  colour.  Consider- 
able quantities  are  also  imported  from  France  and  Italy; 
the  silk  of  the  latter  country  being  esteemed  the  superior. 
The  silk  manufacturers  of  England  have  successfully 
striven  under  many  disadvantages  (one  of  which  has  been 
the  difficulty  of  raising  the  raw  material  at  home),  to 
cope  with  the  continental  manufacturers  in  the  produc- 
tion of  elegant  fabrics,  and  they  now  produce  some 
which  rival,  if  they  do  not  surpass,  those  of  foreigners. 
Manchester,  as  an  example,  exhibits  **  gros  de  Naples  " 
as  good  and  as  cheap  as  that  of  Lyons;  and  the  establish- 
ment of  our  Schools  of  Design  bids  fair  to  secure  our 
superiority  in  the  taste  and  beauty  of  our  patterns. 

Of  the  various  kinds  of  sUk  fabrics  presented  to  our 
notice,  we  can  only  describe  a  few.  Damask,  which  was 
formerly  used  for  dresses,  is  now  chiefly  employed  in 
furniture;  it  is  a  twilled  fabric  made  in  the  same  manner 
as  linen  damask,  with  flowers,  birds,  and  other  orna- 
ments worked  into  its  texture.  Brocade  is  a  fabric  into 
which,  originally,  threads  of  gold  and  silver  or  a  mixture 
of  these  were  introduced  to  increase  the  richness  and 
splendour  of  its  appearance.  This  name,  however,  is 
applied  to  rich  silk  stuffis,  as  satins,  tafietos,  lutestrings, 
&c.,  adorned  with  flowers  and  figures.  Satin  is  a  glossy 
silk  twill  to  which  the  soft  and  glistering  appearance  is 
given  by  rendering  a  great  number  of  the  threads  of  the 
warp  visible  in  the  process  of  weaving:  instead  of  raising 

each  half  of  the  warp  alternately,  only  a  fifth  or  an 
eighth  part  is  raised,  so  that  the  face  which  is  thtui  worm 
downwards,  presents  an  even,  close,  and  smooth  sorfiMSo. 
To  improve  its  appearance,  when  taken  out  of  the  loom, 
it  is  rolled  on  heated  cylinders  which  renders  llie  fiuse 
still  more  smooth,  and  imparts  to  it  a  more  brilliuit 
lustre.  The  smooth  and  plain  fiibrios,  as  lutestring;  gros 
de  Naples,  Persian,  ducape,  levantine,  sarBSoeA^  Ac., 
differ  from  each  other  chiefly  in  their  thk^neas  and 
quality.  Some  of  these,  however,  are  figured.  Taffirty 
is  a  fabric  of  a  wavy  lustre  imparted  by  pressure  and 
heat,  with  the  application  of  an  acidulous  liquor  which 
produces  the  effect  called  watering.  Tabby  and  tabbinota 
are  varieties  of  the  latter.  Armozeen  is  a  thick  plain  silk, 
generally  black;  used  for  clerical  and  funeral  purposes. 

Velvet  is  distinguished  by  the  soft  pile  on  its  suifiusey 
which  is  produced  by  the  insertion  of  short  pieces 
of  silk  thread  doubled  \mder  the  weft,  and  so  crowded 
together  as  entirely  to  conceal  the  interladngs  of  tlia 
warp  and  weft.  The  loops  of  the  thread  are  after- 
wards cut,  and  then  they  exhibit  the  a{^>earanoe  of  a 
brush;  the  pile  is  produced  by  the  separation  of  Uie 
threads,  and  the  application  of  machinery  to  cut  them 
smooth  and  even.  The  warp  and  pile  of  good  velvet  are 
both  composed  of  organzine  silk,  which  is  composed  of 
several  threads  of  raw  silk  twisted  or  throwi  together  in 
the  form  of  a  rope;  and  its  richness  depends  upon  the 
relative  numbers  of  its  pile  threads.  Velvets  are  said  to 
be  of  different  degrees  of  richness,  via.,  of  two,  four,  or 
six  threads,  according  to  the  number  of  pile  thz^tda 
inserted  between  each  of  the  dents  of  the  reed.  The 
velvets  of  Spitalfields  may  be  safely  compared  with 
foreign  velvets  in  fineness  and  strength,  as  well  as  in 
general  appearance. 

Ribbons,  or,  more  properly,  ribands,  are  chiefly  made 
at  Coventry,  and  have  of  late  so  much  improved  in 
manufacture,  that  our  home  producers  can  now  vie  wHh 
the  foreign.  They  partake  of  the  same  varieties  in 
general,  as  the  lai^er  silk  fiabrics;  they  are  frequently 
ornamented  with  a  pearl  edge,  which  is  formed  by 
making  some  of  the  threads  of  the  weft  project  beyond 
the  rest.  Clouding  is  an  appearance  given  to  ribbons  in 
the  dyeing.— R.  W.]

A  great  varictj  of  damaaks  of  different  kinds  are  exhibited.  The  design  of  several  of  theao  represents  in  a 
ibfciUr  manner  the  succcxs  with  which  the  Jacqnard  principle  is  applieil  lo  the  ornamentation  of  fabrics  for 
The  localiliea  supplying  tbeee  and  similar  articles  are  cbicfly  Belfast,  Dunfermline,  Bamslcy, 
ter.  Some  intereating  collections  of  the  materials  used,  and  of  its  first  stages  of  preparation  for 
manabctiire,  are  likewise  shown.  The  most  ordinary  articles  such  as  sacks,  threads,  fisbiu^-ncls,  ropes,  and 
tviae^  baTe  all  a  place  of  interest  and  importance  in  this  Class.  The  heavier  descriptions  of  flax  mannfactnrca 
are  enpfiUed  chiefly  from  Dundee,  Hull,  Greenock,  and  Arbroatb.  The  machinery  necessary  to  weave  some  of 
tbeae  prodoctions,  inch  as  sail-canvas,  sacking,  &c.,  presents  a  forcible  contrast  by  the  size  and  power  of  its 
Dvta  to  the  lighto-  and  more  elegant  machines  employed  for  wearing  the  fine  cambrics  used  for  a  )>ockct-hand- 

SpecuDoni  of  articles  manufactured  from  different  kinds  of  flax  and  hemp  will  also  attract  notice,  and  illns- 
trate  the  peculiar  applicability  of  these  sorts  far  different  fabrics.  Jute,  a  fibrous  material  of  recent  introduc- 
tina  from  the  F.»st  Indiea,  is  becoming  extensively  employed,  particularly  for  carpctini;a,  sacking,  baics,  &c.,  in 
vhidi  a  fine  material  is  not  necesa^.  The  beautiful  flax  preiiared  at  Courtrai,  and  adapted  exclusively  for 
tbe  neat  delkate  fabrics,  is  empWed  in  the  manufacture  of  many  of  the  articles  exhibited.  Britisli,  Russian, 
China,  and  Manilla  hemp,  enters  mto  tbe  composition  of  others. 

In  1841,  npwarda  of  one  million  and  a  quarter  cwts.  of  flax  and  tow  were  imported  into  En^Eland  at  a  duty 
me  penny  a  cwt,,  yielding  conaeqneutly  about  5,500/.  to  the  revenne.  The  flax  factories  in  the  Unitea 
Kinfjdom  are  of  great  mze  and  importance,  and  employ  a  lar^e  number  of  opemtives  in  direct  or  indirect  con- 
neiioD  with  thnn.  If  it  should  become  pOMible  to  obt^n  cheaply  an  adequate  supply  of  flax  of  home  ])roduc- 
1,  and  of  tbe  fit  quality  for  the  purpoees  of  the  spinner,  the  dependency  of  this  country  upoa  the  East  and 
mica  for  oottoD  as  a  textile  material  would  be  greatly  lessened,  and  an  important  field  of  commercial  activity 
would  be  laid  open  at  our  oivn  doom.  But  the  properties  of  flax,  and  the  tedious  proces'Ksneo.-ssary  for  its  pK|n- 
ntion.  have  hitherto  proveil  an  obstacle  to  its  more  extensive  employment.  A  variety  of  ex]>eriments  on  this 
mbject  art  however  in  progress,  the  ultimate  result  of  which  can  scarcely  be  foreseen ;  and  it  appears  already  to 
bara  beoi  proved  by  actual  trial  that  this  fibre  can,  aflcr  preparation,  be  applied  to  the  ordinary  mnchincr}'  of 
tbe  cnttcn-mill,  yam  having  been  spun  up  to  moderate  numbers  from  flax  thus  prepared.  Until  recently  flax 
mltiTBtioa  has  scarcely  been  fairlv  attempted  ;  but  it  seems  probable  that  in  a  short  time  extensive,  and  it 
may  1«  hoped  snoceasfnl,  trials  will  be  made  to  supply  this  country  with  a  manufacturing  material  so  intnniri- 
cally  Talnable.— R.  E.

[The  antiquity  and  celebrity  of  the  "fine  linen"  of 
Egypt,  clearly  points  to  that  country,  as  the  place  where 
its  manufacture  originated.  Specimens  of  this  article 
¥rrapped  about  the  Egyptian  mummies,  and  supposed  to 
be  at  least  3000  years  old,  are  remarkable  for  fineness  of 
texture.  Linen  was  introduced  into  England,  by  the 
Flemings  in  1253,  as  a  substitute  for  the  woollen  shirting 
previously  worn.  Although  Ireland  now  excels  in  this 
manufacture,  it  was  not  introduced  into  that  country 
till  1634. 

One  kind  of  linen  is  still  called  Holland,  from  the 
place  where  it  was  first  manufactured;  this  article  having 
been  lai^ely  imported  for  domestic  use,  before  our  home 
manufacture  had  arrived  at  such  perfection  as  to  take  its 
place.  Unbleached  linen  is  called  broi^-n  Holland,  and 
is  used  for  various  articles  of  clothing  and  upholstery; 
sileaia  is  a  species  of  fine  brown  holland,  glazed.  Dowlas, 
is  a  strong  kind  of  Irish  linen,  for  shirting.  Drill,  is  a 
stout  twill  for  trousers.  Damask,  is  a  twilled  fabric, 
similar  to  that  made  of  silk,  and  much  used  for  table- 
cloths ;  Dunfermline,  in  Scotland,  and  Ardoyne  and 
Lisbiun,  in  Ireland,  are  celebrated  for  the  beauty  and 
excellence  of  their  manufactures  in  this  article.     • 

Brown  damask  is  the  same  article  unbleached,  and 
being  deemed  stronger  in  this  state,  is  used  as  mora 
economical.  Diapers  are  damaaks  of  amaller  idae  and 
simpler  patterns.  There  are  also  xmion  ^*»'***^t  and 
diapers,  made  of  linen  and  cotton  combined.  ' 

Sheeting  linens  are  of  various  names  and  qnalitiea,  as 
Irish,  Lancashire,  and  Scotch;  also  Rusna,  Toikahire, 
and  Bamsley;  besides  there  are  unions  and  imitatkniB  of 
these,  of  which  the  Russia  is  the  strongest  and  oosnest. 
Huckaback,  is  a  species  of  very  coarse  dii^Mr  used  for 
towelling.  Tick  and  union  tick  are  well  known  articles 
for  upholstery  purposes.  Canvas  is  usually  made  of 
hemp,  but  a  finer  sort  is  nuide  from  flax.  Coarse  osnTas 
is  used  for  sail  cloth,  tents,  and  coverings  of  variooi 
kinds.  The  finest  article  made  in  linen,  is  called  eambric 
or  Batiste,  from  Cambray,  where  it  was  first  made,  dt 
Batiste,  its  first  maker.  French  cambric  is  still  much 
esteemed  in  the  shape  of  handkerchiefs,  though  it  is 
often  equalled  by  our  home  manufacture.  Scotch  eambrio 
is  a  cotton  fabric,  made  in  imitation  of  French  cambric 
La\('n  is  a  species  of  very  fine  linen,  approaching  cambric 
in  texture. — R.  W.]

A  side-saddle  with  projecting  "burrs'*  in  the  forepart 
of  the  tree,  to  prevent  the  saddle  from  shifting  to  the  near 
side  and  ^ling  the  horse,  or  slipping  for^*ard;  it  allova 
the  front  iKirt  of  the  saddle  to  be  an  inch  lower  than 
usual,  enabling  the  rider  to  sit  in  a  horizontal  poaition. 
The  safe,  flap,  and  skirt  are  all  in  one  piece,  and  covered 
with  hog-skin.  The  design  of  the  ornamental  work  on 
the  heiuis  aiul  safe — the  i-ose,  shamrock,  and  thistle.  The 
stirrup  is  a  recent  improvement  made  bv  the  exhibitor;  it 
o]>ens  with  a  spiing,  and  dLsengnges  the  rider  s  foot  in 
case  of  a  fall. 

Hunting  saddle  with  elastic  seat,  on  a  new  principle: 
invented  by  the  exhibitor.  The  webs  are  attached  to  a 
strong  arch  of  round  st(.*el  near  the  pommel,  and  so  con- 
structed as  to  lK>ai'  violent  usage  without  injurj',  giving 
additional  Kti*ength  to  the  tree;  the  action  of  the  sprinff 
is  not  more  than  one-eighth  of  an  inch,  which  is  found 
to  be  sufficient  to  produce  the  requisite  degree  of  daa-

Iziipnivt^l  patent  general  htting  middle,  expiuiding  with 
th*f  action  of  the  horse's  muscles,  intended  to  take  off 
deaul  preawure,  and  spread  the  weight.

Improved  patent  hameKs,  with  spring  trace  and  tug,

draught,  taking  off  dea^l-pre^.-iure  from  the  horses' 

Improve*!  patent  safety  rein,  to  enable  the  driver  to 
haTe  Oi>mplete  control. 

Tlie  gvnend  htting  saddle  is  constructed  to  expand  witli 
the  action  <»f  the  muscles,  and  si>rea(.l  the  pi^ssure  or 
«-«:4rht  over  a  greater  surface;  also  to  pn>tect  the  withers 
fr^m  Ijeing  wrung — a  fault  fretjuently  occasione<l  by  the 
xime  "{  tl»e  common  s^iddle.  It  in  objected  to  the  common 
ftkdtii«  th.'it  in  the  event  of  a  horse  stumbling,  the  shoul- 
der* are  forc*r«l  up  into  the  gullet  of  the  pommel,  an<i  the 
MwiUe-trve  is  often  bntkcn;  but  even  when  this  is  not  the 
cb^.  the  onfinement  of  the  shoulders  invariably  prt^ vents 
thfir  free  action,  and  consoquently  the  horso  loses  all 
cLAaoe  of  recnvering  itself. 

The  spring  bar  is  intended  to  relievo  the  horse  of  much 
«-.;riat.  and  at  the  same  time  afford  ease  and  comfort  to 

the  rider,  as  well  as  protection  from  the  injuries  that  so 
often  happen  on  the  pommel  and  cantle  of  the  saddle  ; 
these,  in  the  new  invention,  being  soft  and  elastic.  The 
spring  bar  is  applicable  to  side  saddles. 

The  self-acting  elastic  roller  obviates  the  injury  result- 
ing from  the  use  of  the  present  tight  roller,  which,  nqt 
being  elastic,  when  buckled  round  a  yoimg  animal,  es- 
sentially retards  and  ii^ures  the  formation  of  the  chest, 
while  it  confines  and  weakens  the  action  of  the  lungs.

bar,  so  constructed  as  to  release  the  rider  if  thrown  from 
his  horse.  On  the  off-side  there  is  a  swing  bar,  intended 
as  an  improvement  upon  the  patent  spring  bar.

[The  process  of  tanning — that  ia,  of  the  combination  of 
the  tannic  acid  of  the  oak  bark  with  the  gelatine  of  the 
hide— is  generally  a  slow  one;  in  the  preeent  instance 
remarkably  so.  New  methods  of  haatening  it  forward 
have  been  introduced;  but  it  is  said  that  the  leather  thus 
produced  is  not  equal  in  solidity  and  durability  to  that 
obtained  in  the  ordinary  slow  manner. — R.  E.]

the  oil.  When  the  skin  is  perfectly  saturated  by  the  re- 
process  of  hammering  in  the  mill,  and  partial

the  exhibitors,  from  No.  1  to  No.  27. 

[The  immense  tracts  of  country  over  which  the  Hudson's 
Bay  Company  has  control  may  bo  considered  as  vast 
hunting-grounds,  affording  a  varied  and  exhaustless  sup- 
ply of  furs.  The  territoiial  possessions  of  this  Company 
cover  nearly  one-eighth  of  the  habitable  globe.  Russia 
is  next  m  order  and  im[>ortance  in  this  respect,  but  with 
a  diflferent  race  of  animals.  The  fur  produce  of  North 
America  and  the  Canadas  is  also  important.  As  we  ap- 
proach the  tropics  and  the  warmer  regidns,  the  silky

Chinese  markets,  being  highly  prized  in  these  countries. 
The  cross  and  red  fox  are  used  by  the  Chinese,  Greeks, 
Persians,  &c.,  for  cloak-linings  and  for  trimming  dresses. 
The  white  and  blue  fox  is  used  in  this  and  other  coun- 
tries for  ladies'  wear.  In  the  sumptuary  laws  passed  in 
the  reign  of  Henry  III.,  the  fox  is  named  with  other  furs 
then  in  use. — J.  A.  N.] 

6.  Group  of  otter  {Lutra  Canadensis). 

[The  Hudson's  Bay  North  American  and  European 
otters  are  chiefly  exported  for  the  use  of  the  Russians, 
Chinese,  Greeks,  and  others,  for  cape,  collars,  trimming 
national  dresses,  robes,  &c.  Upwards  of  500  otters,  the 
produce  of  Great  Britain,  during  the  last  year,  were  ex- 
ported.— J.  A.  N.] 

7.  Group  of  beaver  (Castor  Amcricanm). 

[The  beaver  in  former  years  was  one  of  the  Hudson's 
Bay  Company's  most  valuable  productions;  but  since  its 
use  has  been  almost  entirely  discontinued  in  the  manu- 
fitcture  of  hats,  it  has  lost  much  of  its  value.  Experiments 
have,  however,  been  made,  and  with  prospect  of  success, 
to  adapt  its  fine  and  silky  wool  to  weaving  purposes. 
The  skin  of  the  beaver  is  prepared  by  a  new  process,  after 
which  the  surface  is  cut  by  a  new  and  ingenious  machine, 
and  the  result  is  a  beautiful  fur  for  ladies'  wear.  It  is 
exported  in  its  prepared  state  to  various  parts  of  Europe 
and  the  East.  The  rich  white  wool  from  the  under  part 
of  the  beaver  is  largely  exported  to  France. — J.  A.  N.] 

8.  Group  of  lynx  {Rlis  Canadensis), 

9.  „         lynx  cat  (Felis  Rnfa), 

[Both  the  above  furs,  when  dyed,  were  formerly  much 
used.  It  is  still  dyed  and  prepared,  and  exported  in 
large  numbers  for  the  American  market.  In  its  nattuid 
state,  it  is  a  greyish  white,  with  dark  spots,  and  is  used 
by  the  Chinese,  Greeks,  Persians,  and  others,  for  cloaks, 
linings,  facings,  &c. :  it  is  very  soft,  warm,  and  light. 
The  fur  formerly  called  the  lucem  is  the  lynx. — J.  A.  N.]

[The  wolves  are  generally  use<l  as  cloak  and  coat  linings 
in  Russia,  and  other  cold  coimtries;  also  for  sleigh- 
coverings,  and  open  travelling  carriages.  The  other  skins 
enumerated  are  principally  used  for  trimmings,  linings, 
&c.  The  tail  of  the  fisher  is  very  valuable,  and  exclusively 
used  by  the  Jews. — J.  A.  N.] 

13.  Group  of  badger  (T'.ixidea  Labradoritt). 

[The  North  American  badger  is  exported  for  general 
wear;  its  soft  fine  fur  renders  it  suitable  for  that  purpose. 
The  European  badger,  on  the  contrary,  from  the  natufe 
of  its  hair,  is  extensively  used  for  the  manufacture  of 
shaving  brushes. — J.  A.  N.] 

14.  Group  of  martin  or  sable  {Mastela  mirtes), 

[The  Hudson's  Bay  martin  is  consumed  in  large  quan- 
tities in  this  country,  in  France,  and  in  Germany.  The 
lining  of  a  mantle  made  of  black  sables,  with  white 
spots,  and  presented  by  the  Bishop  of  Lincoln  to  Henry  I., 
was  valued  at  100/.  In  Henry  the  Eighth's  reign,  a 
sumptuary  law  confined  the  use  of  the  fur  of  sables  to  the 
nobility  above  the  rank  of  viscounts. — J.  A.  N.] 

15.  Group  of  mink  {^fttstela  vison), 

[The  mink  is  exclusively  the  produce  of  the  Hudson's

[The  musquash,  or  large  American  musk-rat,  iBimporiad 
into  this  country  in  immense  numbers:  it  was  formeiiy 
much  used  in  the  manufacture  of  hats,  but  the  introduc- 
tion of  the  silk  hat  has  entirely  superseded  its  use;  and 
the  fur  is  employed  for  wear  after  having  undergone  pre- 
paration.— J.  A.  N.]

skins  imported  by  this  Company :  like  all  fun  from  th« 
Polar  regions,  its  hair  is  fine,  long,  and  thick,  but  the

[The  lazge  North  American  black  bear  is  technioilly 
termed  the  army  bear,  because  it  is  generally  used  for 
military  purposes  in  this  and  other  countries,  for  csp% 
pistol-holsters,  rugs,  carriage  hammerclothi,  sleigh  oover- 
ings,  &c.  The  fine  black  cub  bears  are  much  songlii 
after  in  Russia  for  making  shube-linings,  cottt>liningi 
trimmings,  facings,  &c.  The  other  sorts,  with  the  laigt

The  white  Polar  bear,  the  supply  of  which  is  very  liw»it^, 
is  generally  made  into  rugs,  which  are  often  bordered 
with  the  black  and  grey  bear.  The  brown  or  Isabella 
bear  is  at  the  present  time  used  for  ladies*  wear  in 
America.— J.  A.  N.] 

24.  Group  of  sea-otter  (Euirydra  maritima), 

[The  sea-otter  is  most  sought  after  by  the  traders,  on 
account  of  its  great  commercial  value:  it  is  said  to  be  the 
royal  fur  of  China,  and  is  much  used  by  the  officers  of 
state,  mandarins,  &c.  It  is  in  great  esteem  in  Biiiisit, 
and  principally  worn  by  gentlemen  for  collars,  cufi^ 
facings,  trimmings,  &c.  On  account  of  its  great  weight 
it  is  rarely  used  by  la<:lio8. — J.  A.  N]

and  are  imported  into  this  country  in  immense  numben. 
They  are  purchaseil  here  by  the  merchants  who  attend 
the  i>eriodical  fur  sales,  and  who  dispose  of  large  quantitios 
at  the  great  fair  at  Leipsic :  they  are  principally  used  in 
Russia,  and  throughout  Germany,  for  lining  shubes  and 
coats,  and  are  exclusively  confined  to  gentlemen's  wear. 
The  dark  skins  are  the  choicest,  and  are  very  valuable.]

[The  Russian  or  Siberian  sable  is  one  of  the  most  costly 
fora,  and  is  manufactured  into  linings,  which  are  gene- 
rally used  as  presents  by  great  potentates,  being  of  the 
Taloe  of  1000  guineas  and  upwards.  The  Lord  Mayor, 
Aldermen,  and  SherifEi,  &c.,  of  the  city  of  London,  have 
their  robes  and  gowns  furred  with  this  sable  accord- 
ing to  their  respective  ranks.  The  tail  of  the  sable  is 
also  used  in  the  manufacture  of  artists'  pencils  or  brushes.

aaUwiiuad  skins  annually.] 

33.  Gtroup  of  stone  martin  {Martcs  cUbogularis), 

[The  stone  martin  is  widely  spread  over  Europe,  and 
derives  its  name  from  the  fSnct  of  its  selecting  rocks, 
mined  castles,  ftc.,  as  its  haunts.  The  French  excel  in 
dying  this  fur,  and  it  is  in  consequence  termed  French 

34.  Group  of  baum  martin  (Afcwtea  abietum), 

[The  baum  or  wood  martin  is  so  named  from  its  being 
iutaiiably  found  in  woods  and  pine  forests  in  Europe. 
Th«  fur  in  its  natural  state  is  similar  to  the  North 
American  sable,  but  ooaner.  It  is  distinguished  by  the 
bright  jellow  colour  of  its  throat;  when  dyed,  the  fur 
closely  resembles  the  real  sable.]

in  the  greatest  perfection),  in  such  immense  niuubers  as 
woidd  appear  almost  incredible;  the  importation  from 
thence  to  this  country  alone,  last  year,  exceeding2,000,000. 
The  celebrated  Weisenfels  lining  is  made  from  the  white 
part  of  the  dark-blue  squirrel.  A  full-sized  cloak -lining 
weighs  only  25  ounces :  it  is  known  as  the  petit  gris.  For 
colder  cUmates  the  linings  are  made  from  the  back  or

[The  grey  and  black  Russian  lamb  is  mostly  used  for 
gentlemen's  cloiik  and  coat  linings,  for  facings,  collars, 
caps,  &c.,  and  also  for  army  puq>oses.  The  Astracjui 
lamb  is  a  rich,  wavy,  glossy,  black  skin,  very  short  in  the 
fur,  having  the  apf)earanco  of  beautiful  watere<l  silk  : 
in  order  to  obtain  this  choice  skin,  it  is  averred  that 
the  psu*ent  sheep  is  destroyed  a  certain  time  befoi-e  the 
birth  of  the  lamb.  The  Persian,  grey,  and  black  lamb, 
is  covered  with  very  minute  curls ;  this  is  produced,  it  is 
Kiiid,  by  the  aniuml  being,  as  soon  as  bom,  sewn  up 
tightly  in  a  leathern  skin,  which  prevents  the  curl  ex- 
juinding.  The  Hungarian  lamb  is  prodiiced  in  that 
country  in  immense  numbers;  of  it  the  national  coat, 
called  the  Juhasz  Bunda,  is  niaile.  In  the  sununer  or 
wet  weather  the  fur  or  woolly  part  is  worn  outside;  in 
NNinter,  when  wiu-mth  is  ro<]uiivd,  it  is  revei-sed:  the  skin 
is  tanned  or  dressed  in  a  way  peculiju*  to  the  country, 
and  decorated  ami  embroidered  in  accordance  with  the 
means  tuid  t;wte  of  the  weiu*er.  In  Spain,  the  lamb  is

[The  cat,  when  properly  attended  to,  and  bred  purposely 
for  its  skin,  nupplies  a  most  useful  and  durable  fur;  in 
Holland  it  is  bred  and  kept  in  a  confined  state  till  the  fur 
is  in  its  greatest  p^irfection,  and  is  fed  entirely  on  fish. 
In  other  countries,  and  especially  in  our  ov^-u,  it  is  pro- 
duced in  large  numbers.  The  wild  cat  is  much  larger 
and  longer  in  the  fur,  and  is  met  with  in  extensive  forests, 
particularly  in  Hungor}';  the  colour  is  grey,  siK>tted  with 
black,  and  its  softness  and  durability  render  it  suit- 
able for  cloak  and  coat  linings,  for  which  purpose  it 
is  much  used.  The  black  species  is  also  much  in  request,

have  since  been  formed  in  various  parts  of  the  country. 
It  is  in  great  demand  in  China  and  Russia,  to  which  coun- 
tries it  is  invariably  expoi-teil,  on  account  of  the  high 
price  there  obtained.  The  white  Polish  rabbit  is  a 
breed  peculiar  to  tliat  countrj*.  The  finer  sorts  of  white 
rabbit  are  much  use<l  as  substitutes  for  ennine.  So 
late  as  the  reign  of  Henry  the  Eighth,  such  inqwrtance 
was  attached  to  the  coney  or  rabbit  skin,  that  the 
charter  of  tlie  Skinners'  Company  sliows  they  were  worn 
by  nobles  and  gentlemen.  Acts  of  Ptu-liament  were  passed 
regulating  their  sole  and  exjwrtation,  which  are  still  in

[Tlie  seal  is  an  inliabitant  of  most  countries;  it  is  found 
in  the  high  northern  latitudes  in  immense  numbers; 
ships  arc  purpos^'ly  fittwl  out  for  its  Ciipture;  the  oil  pro- 
duced by  the  animsil,  together  with  its  skin,  render  it 
(connected  as  it  is  with  the  whale  fisherj')  inqiortant  to 
the  trader,  and  interesting  to  tho  naturalist.  The  skins 
ore  salted  and  packe<l  in  casks,  in  which  state  they  ore 
sent  to  this  country;  they  are  then  sorted  and  Belecte<l 

for  various  purposes;  those  suitable  for  leather  pais  into 
the  tanners'  hands,  and  make  a  beautiful  leather,  which  is 
used  for  Lulies'  shoes.  The  blue  bock,  the  hair,  and  the 
silver  seal,  are  dressed  and  used  in  their  natural  state, 
and  also  dyed  and  exported  in  large  quantities.  The 
fur  seal,  the  supply  of  which  is  always  small  ocympaiyNl 
with  the  other  kinds,  umlei^goes  a  prooess  to  prepare  it 
for  its  intended  use.  It  is  brought  at  the  present  time 
to  a  great  degree  of  perfection  in  this  country;  when 
divested  of  tho  long  coarse  hair  (which  protects  it  in 
its  native  element)  there  remains  the  rich,  curly,  mUkj, 
yellowish  down,  in  which  state  it  was  fonnerly  used  for 
travelling  caps  and  other  purposes.  It  is  now  seldom 
marlc  use  of  in  that  state,  but  dyed  a  beautifbl  Vandyke 
broAi-n,  giving  it  the  appearance  of  the  richest  velvet,  and 
is  manufactured,  in  every  ATuiety  of  shape  and  form,  as 
articles  of  dress  for  ladies',  gentlemen's  and  children's 

The  dressing,  preparing,  and  unhairing,  has  been  ef-

wliich  for  the  rapid  multi])lication  of  news])apcrs  is  extending.  By  this  arrangement,  the  vertical,  the  power 
of  production  is  only  limited  by  the  size  of  the  machine. 

Among  many  interesting  specimens  of  typography,  those  which  exhibit  the  production  of  books  in  other 
tongues,  by  tyi)e  cast  in  England,  will  attract  notice.  The  Holy  Scriptures  are  exhibited  in  one  hundred  and 
fifty  different  languages — ^a  noble  evidence  of  the  highest  application  of  industry  to  the  enlightenment  and 
welfare  of  mankind.     Beautiful  specimens  of  the  bookbinder's  art  are  likewise  shown. 

An  envelope-folding  machine,  placed  at  the  side  of  the  Main  Avenue,  is  a  striking  instance  of  the  successful 
application  of  mechanical  movements  to  the  performance  of  the  most  delicate  and  complicated  actions.  By 
tliis  machine,  which  would  in  strictness  appear  to  belong  to  a  preceding  Class,  the  movements  of  the  hand  of 
the  folder  are  not  only  exactly  imitated,  but  the  result  is  more  accurate  and  certain,  and  the  power  of  pro- 
duction is  very  largely  increased. 

Tlie  peculiar  interest  which  attaches  to  the  objects  in  this  Class,  as  the  most  powerful  agents  in  the  social 
and  intellectual  improvement  of  man,  cannot  fail  to  be  awakened  by  the  most  casual  inspection.  Pai>er, 
))rinting,  and  bookbinding,  are,  however,  only  the  raw  material,  the  application  and  reproduction  of  which  is 
dei)cn(lent  u^wn  the  powers  of  the  mind,  not  on  those  of  matter. — R.  E.

[In  the  interesting  collection  of  papers  in  the  Exhi- 
bition, from  various  pa|)er-mills,  there  are  groups  whose 
degrees  of  excellence  must  be  estimated  by  very  diflferent 
standards ;  as,  for  instance,  the  brown  wrapping  and  the 
fine  hand-made  <lrawing  papers,  the  sugar  and  the  fine 
printing  papers,  the  bibulous  plate  paper  for  engrravers' 
Uf*e,  and  the  hai-d  sized  \vTituig  pai>ers.  Collectively  it 
exhibits,  at  one  view,  the  various  qmdities  which  are 
sought  for  by  English  consumers,  and  which,  in  many 
i-e^pects,  differ  from  those  required  by  our  Continental 
neighbours ;  as  an  example,  may  be  quoted  the  substantial 
Knglish  writing  papers  and  the  thin  post  papers  of  France 
and  Belgium,  whose  different  qualities  arise  from  the 
difference  of  postal  regulations  in  those  countries. 

The  system  of  producing  paper  in  continuous  lengths 
by  machinery'  was  first  introduced  by  Messrs.  Fourdrinier 
into  this  country,  they  haWng  purchased  the  patent 
right  of  Mr.  Gamble,  who,  in  1804,  obtained  permission 
fi*om  the  French  Government  to  bring  to  England  a 
model  of  a  machine,  invented  in  1799,  by  Louis  Robert, 
who  was  then  employed  in  the  jMper  works  of  Essonne. 
Tliis  machine  of  Mr.  Roberts  ^*a8  essentially  imperfect, 
l>ut  it  was  brought  to  a  state  of  great  perfection  for  Messrs, 
Fourdrinier,  by  the  ingenuity  of  Blr.  Bryan  Donkin; 
upon  this  has  been  founded  the  varions  descriptions  of 
paper-making  machines  which  have  since  that  time  been 
introduced.  They  consist  essentially  of  contrivances 
by  which  the  paper  i>ulp  is  made  to  flow  on  the  surface 
of  an  endless  wire  web ;  a  rapid  up  and  down  motion 
being  given  to  it  for  the  purpose  of  shaking  the  water  out 
of  the  pulp,  and  thus  producing  a  complete  interweaving 
of  the  textile  filaments.  The  continuous  roll  of  paper 
thus  fonjied  is  turned  off  upon  a  second  solid  cylinder, 
covere<l  with  felt,  iq>on  whicli  it  is  condensed  by  a  third, 
iuid  eventually  delivei'cd  to  drying  rollers.

Envelope -folding  machine,  inventeid  by  Edwin  Hill 
Warren  De  la  Rue. 

[The  following  is  the  action  of  this  machine.  The 
feeding-boy  places  the  previously  cut  blank  enrelopeB 
on  to  a  small  platform,  which  rises  and  falls  in  the 
rectangular  recess  fonncd  by  the  C}-lindrioal  azea  of 
the  folders  (shown  open  in  the  engraving) ;  the  bear- 
ings of  the  foldera  serving  by  their  elongation  to  guide 
the  envelope  into  its  place  at  the  moment  of  the  small 
Ijlatfttrui  falling.  A  plunger  now  descends  and  croases 
the  envelope  by  carrying  it  between  the  folder-axea, 
at  the  same  time  turning  the  flai)s  upwards  in  a 
vertical  direction:  the  plunger,  which  descended  as  a 
whole,  now  di\'ides  into  two  parts,  the  ends  rising  and 
the  sides  remaining  down  to  hold  the  envelope  until  the 
end -folders  have  operated;  these  latter  turn  over  the 
flaps,  the  one  on  the  right  of  the  feeding-lad  taking  a 
slight  precedence,  and  being  closely  followed  by  the 
gumming  apparatus,  which  takes  gum  from  an  endless 
blanket  working  in  a  trough,  and  after  applying  it  to  the 
two  end  flaps,  retires,  at  the  same  time  the  remuning 
half  of  the  plunger  moves  upwards,  to  allow  of  the  side 
folders  turning  over  the  remaining  two  fli^is,  the  folder 
nearest  the  feeder  taking  precedence.  During  these 
operations,  the  end-folders  have  remained  at  rest,  and  the 
whole  four  open  simultaneously.  The  taking-off  appa- 
ratus, with  its  Angers  tipped  with  vulcanised  caoutchouc, 
now  moves  forward  over  the  folded  envelope,  whicli  ia 
lifted  upwanls  by  the  rise  of  the  snudl  platform  and  re- 
treats with  it,  placing  each  envelope,  as  it  is  successively 
folded,  under  those  which  have  preceded  it.  The  enve- 
lo|»o.^  arc  now  knocked  over  on  to  an  endless  blanket,  and

Id  illustration  of  the  articles  lometimes  sent  by  post, 
it  may  be  dted,  that  some  yeara  back  Profeaaor  Henalow 
was  in  the  babit  of  receiving,  from  membeia  of  an  agri- 
cultural society  which  he  had  established,  Bpedmens  of 
living  slugi  of  toHoui  kinds,  sent  for  examination,  with 
a  view  to  his  advice  for  their  extermination.  Were 
it  not  for  the  cheap  postage  many  of  the  publiahing 
societies  now  in  existence  would  not  have  been  eatebltshed, 
on  account  of  the  eipenae  of  oollecting  manuscripta, 
transmitting  proofs,  and  circulating  books.  But  it  ia  not 
only  in  this  way  that  the  postal  refona  ha*  extended  its 
benefits,  for  with  the  reduction  of  rates  a  liberal  poUoy 
haa  increased  the  faciUUea  of  deliveiy  by  the  estahliah- 
ment  since  1839  of  4,600  new  post-offlcM,  which  an

Returning  to  the  manubcture  of  envelopes,  we  find 
but  little  progress  until  March  1B45,  when  Ur.  Edwin 
Hill  and  Mr.  Warren  De  la  Rue  took  out  a  patent  for 
cutting  and  folding  machinery.  Until  this  period,  enve-

after  it  has  dried,  apply  the  gold  or  silver  leaf  with

[A  map  may  be  defined  as  a  projection  of  the  surface  of 
the  globe  on  a  plane  surface.  As  the  form  of  the  earth  is 
nearly  that  of  a  sphere,  it  is  evident  that  the  only  map 
which  can  truly  represent  the  positions  of  places  is  that 
on  the  surface  of  a  globe.  That  projection  which  comes 
the  nearest  to  the  true  representation  of  the  globe  is 
termed  the  ''globular."  Qu'  Mercator's  projection  some 
of  the  difficulties  attendant-;  upon  circular  projection  are 
avoided :  all  the  lines  are  right  lines,  and  all  the  meri- 
dians are  equidistant.  The  advantages  of  this  projection 
are,  that  the  bearing  of  every  .place  is  true  with  ^respect 
to  other  places,  and  distances  may  be  measured  correctly 
from  it;  but  the  spaces  between  the  parallels  of  latitude 
increase  as  they  recede  from  the  equator,  and  in  high 
latitudes  the  departure  from  truth  is  great. — J.  Q.]

*i.rf  jce  of  the  paper,  so  that  the  sense  of  touch  may  supply 
thr*  wMit  Iff  sight.  These  characters,  which  are  repre- 
M*&ti9ii  in  the  annexed  cut,  are  simple  in  their  form, 
b»:nz  a  i^traight  line,  a  curved  line,  and  a  <lot  placed 
in  tiiflV-rent  jxisitions;  by  this  means  the  complication 
*{  wtn»k(«  in  the  letters  of  the  alphal>et  is  avoided,

A*  the  fin^r  cannot  pass  over  a  word  so  rapidly 
iiP  th*-  fve,  grt!at«T  fluency  is  securr<l  }»y  the  use  of 
c  ntrawrtj«-nii  similar  to  those  employed  in  short-hand 
^r.'Auz.      Many  who  have   lost  their  sight  in  advanced 

life,  and  whose  sense  of  touch  has  become  less  acute 
from  hard  work,  have  been  enabled  to  read  this  simple 
alphabet,  when  they  have  found  it  impossible  to  ms- 
tinguish  more  complicated  characters.  An  adequate 
knowledge  of  the  system  can  be  acquired  by  a  pupil  in  six 
months,  and  by  many  in  a  shorter  period.  The  system 
was  proposed  by  the  late  Mr.  Lucas,  of  Bristol,  and  was 
reduced  to  practice  by  the  Rev.  J.  W.  Qowring,  in  the 
year  1842,  under  the  direction  of  the  London  Societv  for 
teaching  the  blind  to  read.  The  greater  portion  of  the 
Scriptures,  with  the  lituigy  of  the  Church  of  England, 
and  various  books  of  elementary  instruction,  have  already 
been  published  in  these  characters. 

Chrphering  boards  for  the  blind.  The  boards  being 
perforated  with  square  holes,  types  with  simple  cha- 
racters raised  in  their  ends  can  be  arranged  in  any  order. 
Five  characters  similar  to  those  employed  in  reading  are 
used  in  different  positions,  each  havmg  a  numeral  value. 

Maps  for  the  blind.  The  land  is  raised  above  the  water, 
and  cities,  mountains,  rivers,  and  boimdary  lines  are  all 
marked  so  as  to  be  easily  felt. 

Qeometrical  boards  for  the  blind. 

Specimen  of  embossed  copies,  used  for  instructing  the

being  prepared  with  embossed  lines. 

Apparatus  for  enabling  the  blind  to  emboss  Lucas's 
characters,  and  thus  communicate  with  each  other.  The 
characters  are  raised  on  a  stamp,  having  ten  arms,  fitting 
into  the  aperture  of  a  slide  so  that  the  letters  cannot  be 
incorrectly  formed  ;  this  slide  moves  along  a  bar,  and 
indicates,  by  means  of  a  rack,  the  distance  it  has  been 
moved.  The  lines  are  kept  equidistant  by  the  bar  which 
moves  down  the  board,  which  is  retained  in  its  position 
by  a  simple  contrivance. 

A  specimen  of  music  for  the  blind,  in  raised  characters, 
each  character  denoting  both  the  sound  and  its  length, 
whereby  the  stave  is  dispensed  with.  The  music  can 
be  written  by  means  of  the  embossed  copies. 

Chess  boards  for  the  blind.  The  black  squares  are 
raised,  and  the  pieces  have  pegs  to  fasten  them  in  the 
board.  The  black  pieces  are  distinguished  by  a  point  at 
the  top.  The  last  three  articles  were  invented  by  Mr.  W.

[The  invention  of  characters  in  relief  was  among  the 
earliest  measures  resorted  to  for  the  instruction  of  the 
blind.  Mr.  Gall,  of  Edinburgh  invented  an  alphabet  upon 
this  j)rinciple,  called  'Hhe  triangular."  Moveable  letters, 
place<l  in  grooves,  were  aften^-ards  employed,  but  aban- 
doned. A  string  alphabet,  like  the  "  quipos,"  or  knotted 
cord  of  Peru,  for  distant  communication,  ^iis  proposed. 
Various  other  attempts  for  this  purpose  were  made,  until 
Haiiy  invented  the  art  of  printing  in  relief;  this  was  then 
aj)plied  to  Mr.  Gall's  triangular  alphabet.  By  the  system 
of  Mr.  Lucas  the  repetition  of  numerous  letters  is  avoided ; 
simple  characters  are  usotl ;  particles  are  mostly  repre 
sented  by  initial  letters,  a  system  which  is  followed  upon 
the  frequent  i-epetition  of  a  word. — R.  He.]

[Formerly  the  application  of  coloured  designs  to  fabrics 
of  various  kinds  was  entirely  effected  by  what  is  called 
block-printing,  and  which,  in  fact,  closely  resembles  type 
printing.  A  block  of  wood  or  metal,  or  a  combination 
of  both,  being  engraved  with  the  pattern,  received  the 
colour  by  the  ordinary  means,  and  this  was  then  trans- 
ferred by  hand  to  the  fabric.  For  every  different  colour 
a  different  block  was  required,  and  in  complicated  pat- 
terns, with  many  colours,  the  process  was  excessively 
tedious.  It  is,  however,  still  largely  employed  where 
g^reat  care  in  the  application  of  the  colour  and  sharpness 
of  definition  in  the  pattern  is  required,  but  block- 
printing  can  only  be  remunerative  in  the  better  descrip- 
tions of  goods,  as  the  infinitely  more  rapid  and  econo- 
mical process  of  cylinder  printing  has  almost  superseded 
it  for  the  production  of  those  of  commoner  kinds. —

[For  textile  fabrics,  natund  flowei*s  have  been  repre-

parting from  the  original  type,  the  chai-acter  of  de^sign

"nie  lace  productions  of  Honiton  and  Buckinghamshire  have  long  attained  universal  renown.  These  laces  are 
chiefly  wmufcht  by  hand  at  tbo  homes  of  the  persons  concerned  in  tlieir  manufacture ;  but  recently  a  combina- 
tion  of*machiue-tnade  lace  and  pillow-made  ornament  has  been  introduced  under  the  title  of  "appliqude  lace." 
Tbe  machine  lace  of  Nottingham  has  scarcely  an  inferior  d^rce  of  celebrity :  in  that  town  factories  are  in 
almost  ooostant  work  producing,  by  the  aid  of  a  large  number  of  the  most  delicate  and  costly  automatic  engines, 
this  slender  fabric.  In  a  preceding  Class  these  machines  are  described,  and  ore  eihibiled  in  motion  in  another 
part  of  tbe  Building.  In  tbo  South  Central  Gallery  are  some  beautiful  sjiecimcns  of  the  intricate  and  elegant 
ornamentation  capable  of  being  imparled  by  these  machines.  Of  the  lace  made  by  hand  various  interesting 
apedmens  are  shown  which  represent  much  patient  eGbrt  in  the  iuBtniction  of  tbe  poor  in  this  art,  and  conslder-

[Few  departments  of  ornamental  industry  have  ex- 
perienced so  many  vicissitudes,  in  consequence  of  the  in- 
troduction of  mechanical  power,  as  that  of  the  lace  manu- 
facture. The  lace  of  Honiton,  in  Devon,  has  long  rivalled 
the  most  beautiful  and  costly  protluctiona  of  the  Continent. 
At  one  period  during  the  last  war,  veils  of  Honiton  laco 
sold  for  very  large  sums,  as  much  as  100  guineas  having

[The  application  of  machinery  to  the  production  of 
lace  is  rery  remarkable  and  interesting,  as  probably  few 
introductions  of  machinery  to  textile  manufactures  pro- 
duced 80  sudden  an  alteration  on  the  expiration  of  the 
patent  protecting  it,  in  the  ordinary  course  of  fabrication. 
The  bobbin-net  machine  was  invented  in  1809  ;  it  came 
into  general  use  in  1823,  and  an  immense  stimulus  was 
communicated  to  the  manufacture.  The  powers  of  pro- 
duction of  this  machine  are  to  hand  labour  nearly  as 
30,000  to  5,  and  the  lace  produced  by  it  has,  in  plain 
article*,  wholly  superseded  that  made  by  hand. — R.  £.]

Carpet  made  at  the  patent  Axminstor  carpet  manufac-

[The  production  of  the  peculiar  description  of  carpets, 
known  as  "  Axminster,"  form  the  principal  manufacture 
of  that  town.  It  appears  to  have  been  commenced  in 
imitation  of  the  style  of  Turkey  carpets,  but  a  variety 
of  patterns  have  been  produced.  The  same  kind  of 
carpets  are,  however,  produced  in  other  places.  The  thick 
and  soft  pile  of  these  carpets  distinguishes  them  from 
others.  In  the  present  example,  a  peculiar  modification 
of  the  ordinary  process  of  manufacture  has  been  intro- 
duced, by  which  the  worsted  is  thrown  to  the  surflEMje, 
and  does  not  appear  on  the  other  side  at  all. — K.  £.]

Scarf  composed  of  British  silk,  being  the  produce  of 
2,000  silk  worms,  which  were  kept  in  an  out-house  at

after  which,  it  vrwi  made  into  the  scarf  now  exhibited. 
The  silk  is  in  its  natural  or  raw  state,  unmanufactiuxsd,

female  worms  are  preserved.

lining,  and  a  valve  fixed  in  the  top  of  the  crown,  which

[The  general  principles  upon  which  a  hat  is  made,  are 
of  a  most  imperfect  description  as  far  as  relates  to  the 
comfort  and  probably,  in  a  degree,  to  the  health  of  the 
wearer.  It  has  been  conjectured  that  one  among  other 
causes  of  premature  baldness,  is  the  deficient  ventilation, 
and  the  undue  contraction  of  the  rim  of  most  hats.  In 
the  present  instance  an  attempt  to  obviate  these  defects 
is  exhibited.]

than  the  Dunstable.  Its  application  to  the  manufacture 
of  ornamental  articles  is  illustrated  in  the  articles  ex-

the  import  of  unmanufactured  material  (straw,  &c.)  from 
Italy  has  taken  phvce,  and  has  been  accompanied  by  a 
corresponding  decrease  in  that  of  manufactured  articles

a  70-guago  frame. 

Gloves,  mitts,  cuffs,  sleeves,  and  caps  made  from  the 
same  materials. 

[By  the  number  of  gauge  is  meant  the  quantity  of  loops 
within  a  given  space,  and  hence  when  these  are  increased 
within  that  space,  the  quality  of  the  fabric  is  increased  in 
delicacy  and  value. 

The  invention  of  the  stocking  frame  is  generally  ascribed 
to  William  Lee,  an  expelled  Cambridge  student,  who, 
watching  the  fingers  of  his  wife,  as  she  toiled  for  their 
mutual  support  by  knitting  stockings,  devised  this 
machine.  By  Elizabeth  and  James  I.,  Lee  was  denied 
that  protection  and  encouragement  due  to  inventors;  ho. 

however,  succeeded  in  receiving,  at  the  hands  of  Sully,  the 
minister  of  the  French  King  Henry,  an  acknowledgmait 
which  was  denied  by  his  own  countrymen.  Lee  died  in 
France,  and  one  of  his  apprentices  brought  the  menufac- 
ture  back  into  England,  where  it  has  been  finally  esta- 
blished and  successfully  carried  out^  Kottingfaam  and 
Leicester  being  its  grand  centres.]

[Dr.  Scorosby^  who  has  devoted  a  hirge  share  of  hia 
attention  to  the  couBtructiou  of  magneto,  adopts  the 
following  mode  of  imparting  magnetism  to  steel  bars. 
He  places  the  bar  to  be  magnetised  upon  two  powerful 
magnets,  and  then  draws  them  gently  apart  until  the 
upper  bar  rests  with  its  ends  on  either  end  of  the  magnets; 
in  this  position  it  is  allowed  to  rest  for  a  short  time,  and 
then  slid  off  laterally,  the  other  side  beuig  turned  down, 
and  the  process  repeated  until  the  bar  of  steel  is 
thoroughly  saturated.  Dr.  Scoresby  insists  upon  the  im- 
portance of  using  the  hardest  steel ;  and  the  most  powerful 
magnets  which  he  has  constructed  are  made  of  a  series 
of  thin  plates  of  steel,  hardened  thi^oughout,  each  one  of 
the  series  being  separately  magnetised. — R.  IL]

Specimens  of  Smith's  patent  galvanised  and  ungal-

[Iron  wire  ropes  are  of  equal  strength  with  a  hempen 
rope  of  four  times  the  weight,  and  resist  the  wear  and 
tear  they  are  subjected  to  in  "running  gear"  twice  as 
long.  If  the  surface  of  a  wire-rope  be  left  in  any  part 
unprotected  by  some  coating  impenetrable  to  moisturo, 
the  internal  fibres  become  in  process  of  time  oxidised. 
and  unseen  decay  goes  forward.  Iron  cleaned  by  add  and 
plunged  into  a  bath  containing  melted  sine,  becomes 
coated  with  that  metal,  and  the  parts  left  unzinked  alone 
rust.   Iron  thus  treated  is  said  to  be  "galvanised.** S.  C]

A  bank-safe  lock.  The  peculiarity  of  thin  lock  consists 
in  an  extension  of  the  key  after  it  is  inserted  in  the  lock, 
and  a  secret  connection  between  the  interior  of  the  key 
and  two  of  the  players.  The  two  inclined  planes  on  the 
under  side  of  the  wards  open  or  shut  the  extension  of  the 
key  as  it  passes  over  them ;  the  part  of  the  key  thus 
extended  operates  on  two  players  placed  beyond  the  reach 
of  picklocks,  while,  at  the  same  time,  the  main  part  of 
the  key  works  other  two  players,  which  are  again  operated 
on  by  the  secret  apparatus  in  the  interior  of  the  key. 
This  secret  apparatus  can  be  removed  at  pleasure,  and  the 
proper  key  then  becomes  unfit  to  work  the  lock,  and  all 
skeleton  keys,  however  well  fitted  to  pass  the  wards,  will 
not  operate  on  the  players.

holder,  which  consists  of  a  piece  of  cloth  strained  over 
what  may  be  called  a  piston,  the  action  of  raising  which, 
produces  a  partial  vacuum,  and  the  coffee  is  strained  by 
passing  through  the  sieve-like  material  of  which  the 
piston  is  composed,  by  atmospheric  pressure. — ^W.  C.  A.]

[The  origin  of  the  term  "bloom"  is  not  very  evident; 
certain  it  is,  that  the  most  ancient  iron-works  in  this 
country  were  called  **bloomarie8,"  or  "bloom-smithies." 
Blooms  are  lumi>s  of  iron,  and  are  produced  in  such  a 
way  as  to  ensure  great  toughness.  Such  as  the  one 
exhibited  are  usually  formed  by  melting  slags  in  fur- 
naces at  such  a  moderated  heat  that  time  is  allowed  for 
the  metal  to  separate  from  the  silicious  matter  which 
contains  the  impurities,  which  then  runs  down  into  a 
basin,  where  all  the  particles  get  agglutinated  and  form 
a  pasty  mass,  which  is  removed  by  a  hooked  pole  in

Bloomsbury — Inventor. 

Registered  conducting  leaf  stove,  adapted  for  heating 
large  apartments  in  houses  exposed  to  a  north-eastern 
aspect.  The  difficulty  of  heating  large  rooms  to  a  com- 
foi-tiiblo  teuijwrature,  in  the  dejith  of  winter,  led  to  the 
invention  of  the  stove  exhibited.  In  an  apiirtment  almost 
insensible  to  the  action  of  the  ordinarj'  fire-place,  and  in 
which  the  thermometer  indiaited  bu^^a  feeble  tendency 
to  rise  two  houra  after  fire-lighting,  it  was  aflfocted  to 
the  extent  of  20  degrees  in  little  more  tlum  as  many 
minutes  after  lighting  a  fire  in  the  leaf  stove.  The  sen- 
sitiveness of  the  leaves  to  the  diffusion  of  heat  is  so  great 
that  the  combustion  of  a  few  shavings  or  a  little  i)!i|>er  in 
the  fire-place  is  immediately  juid  sensibly  felt  in  the 
ajmrtment.  Such  a  result,  obtained  not  only  without 
any  sacrifice  of,  but  in  a«ldition  to,  the  comfort  of  an 
ojHjn  fire  in  the  onlinary  fire-plivco,  cleai'ly  demonstrates 
the  value  of  the  heat  which  we  jHjnnit  to  pass  up  the 
chimney.  By  the  leaf  stove  it  is  rendereil  available,  and 
msule  to  circulate  in  the  apartment,  or  may  be  shut  off  at 

The  conducting  leaf  stove  is  fonned  of  i)lates  of  metal 
so  plitced  that  e;icli  <»ne  is  a  conducting  leaf,  a  iM)rtion  of 
which  g«H*rt  down,  aw  it  were,  into  contact  with  the  fire, 
and  is  exiH)sed  to  the  direct  jution  of  the  heat.  Tho 
heat  thus  ivceived  is  r.ipidly  (listrilmtcHl  over  the  whole 
siu-face  of  the  leaf.  When  it  is  desiix'd  to  tiike  a<lvantage 
of  the  heat  connnunic:ite<l  by  conduction,  it  is  only 
nee<lful  to  set  the  valves  ojHjn,  and  permit  the  air  to 
circtilate  aroimd  the  loaves;  by  closing  the  valves,  the 
circulation  is  snj>presse<l  or  mi>ililied  at  pleasure.  The 
rapidity  of  the  c«»ndiution  of  the  heat  pivvents  the  metal 
attaining  a  high  tirmiK'nitm-e.  The  principle  of  this  stove 
is  to  diti'us«'  a  large  volume  of  air  at  a  genial  temjH?rature 
by  tlu^  combicting  jMnver  of  extensive  sm-fiwes.  In  onli-

Pifttent  porcelain  enamelled  coffee- roasting  cylinder, 
thickly  lined  inside  to  prevent  the  possibility  of  scorching 
or  charring  the  coffee  during  roasting,  and  prevents  the 
berry  frum  imbibing  that  metallic  or  vaporous  flavour,  so 
much  complained  of  in  coffee  roasted  in  the  ordinal^ 
uommon  iron  cylinders.  The  metal  of  which  these 
cyiindera  are  compt^sed  is  altogether  different  to  any 
hitherto  employed  for  that  purpose. 

The  wire  cylinder  is  used  for  purifying  or  cleansing 
coffiM  that  has  imbibed  offensive  flavours  during  im- 
portation. It  ia  likewise  applied  for  cooling  coffee  after 
roaatnig,  by  the  introduction  of  atmospheric  air;  it  in 
cooleil  fai  a  few  minutes,  and  ma}'  be  packed  for  any 
diiitanoe,  without  the  essential  oil  starting  from  the 
berry,  by  what  is  generally  knoun  in  the  trade  by  the

Steel  plate  for  the  use  of  engravers,  machine-ruled,  by 
C.  Mottram,  Esq.,  of  London.  The  sky  tint  upon  this 
plate  is  perhaps  the  most  severe  test  to  which  a  steel  plate 
can  be  subjected ;  the  surface  is  free  from  spots  or  seams ; 
and  it  is  exhibited  to  show  that  steel  is  well  adapted  to 
the  wants  of  the  etcher  and  engraver. 

I*roof  impression  from  the  plate  on  India  paper. 

[An  entire  change  in  engra\'ing  has  taken  place  by  the 
substitution  of  steel  for  copper  plates.  An  engra\'ing 
made  ujKDn  coi>per  is  speedily  rendered  useless  by  the 
process  of  inking,  and  the  friction  necessiiry  to  remove 
the  superfluous  ink.  The  rubbing  with  whitening  to 
clean  the  face  of  the  plate,  wears  away  the  surface,  and 
renders  it  valueless  after  a  few  thousand  impressions. 
This  is  not  the  case  with  a  steel  plate;  an  instance  is  on 
rcconl  where  500,000  copies  were  printed  from  one  plate. 

The  Queen's  head  on  the  postage  stamp  has  been  only 
once  engraved.  It  had,  in  1842,  been  multiplied  6,000 
times,  that  is  to  say,  the  original  produced  6,000  plates, 
which  printed  all  the  postivge  stamps  of  the  above  kind 
which  ha^l  Ijcen  used  since  the  introduction  of  Rowland 
Hill's  measure  up  to  the  period  stated. 

The  multiplication  of  a  steel  plate  is  a  feature  of  some 
iraporijmce :  a  plate  is  engraved  and  hardened ;  from  this 
an  impression  is  taken  upon  a  softened  steel  roller;  this 
steel  roller  is  then  hanlened,  and  softened  steel  jilates 
being  pjused  under  it,  an  impression  is  imparted  to  them; 
they  are  in  turn  hardene<l,  and  are  equal  to  the  original 
as  to  their  impressions.  This  method  is  a<lopte<l  in  bauk- 
note  engraving;  and  the  postjige-stamp  plates  are  pro- 
duced by  the  same  means. — W.  C.  A.]

[Steel  may  be  regarded  as  a  carburet  of  iron ;  it  is 
usually  manufactured  by  the  process  of  cementation. 
The  cement,  as  it  is  called,  consists  of  the  charcoal  of 
hard  wood — sometimes  soft  is  employed — mixed  with  a 
small  quantity  of  ashes  and  some  salt.  The  bottom  of 
the  trough  of  the  cementing  furnace  being  covered  with 
this  mixture,  bars  of  steel  are  placed  upon  it;  these  are 
again  covered  with  the  carbonaceous  compound,  and  so 
on  until  the  trough  is  filled.    The  whole  is  closed,  and 

the  fire  urged  until  all  aoquires  a  tempeniare  of  aboiut 
lOO**  Wedgwood;  and  this  is  steadily  maintained  for  some 
days,  the  time  varying;  under  different  conditions,  from 
four  days  to  ten.  In  Uiese  furnaces,  12  tons  of  bar  iron 
may  at  each  charge  be  converted  into  steel.  Blistered 
steel  is  so  called  from  the  air-bubblea  which  cover  its 
sxufaoe,  which  blisters  appear  to  result  from  the  forma- 
tion of  carbonic  oxide  in  the  process  of  cementation. 

The  operation  of  tilting  is  performed  by  beating  the 
steel  under  tilt-hammers  until  it  ia  rendered  of  a  very 
uniform  structure.  The  tilt-hammers  usually  weigh 
about  200  cwt.— R.  H.]

[Iron  is  converted  into  steel  by  a  process  called  cemen- 
tation, which  consists  in  placing  iron  bars  in  troughs  of 
fire-brick,  and  covering  them  with  layers  of  powder  of 
wood  charcoal,  salt,  and  ashes.  Dr.  Ure  is  of  opinion  that 
the  latter  material  is  valueless.  Care  is  taken  that  the 
Iron  bars  do  not  touch  each  other.  The  troughs,  when 
filled,  are  covered  up  with  loam,  and  subjected  to  the 
action  of  a  furnace,  the  heat  of  which  is  uiged  until  it 
arrives  at  the  proper  temperature,  and  until  the  trough 
and  its  contents  become  one  red-hot  mass  of  matter.  In 
this  state  it  is  maintained  for  a  longer  or  shorter  period, 
viz.,  from  four  to  ten  days,  according  to  the  nature  of 
the  steel  desired ;  if  soft,  the  time  is  shorter.  The  heat 
produces  the  combination  of  the  carbon  with  the  iron 
and  completes  the  conversion  of  a  soft  substance  into 
one  of  the  most  brittle;  it  then  undeigoes  the  process  of 
hardening,  by  being  plunged  into  cold  water. 

Shear-steel  is  formed  by  uniting  together  several  bars 
of  blister-steel  by  means  of  a  steel  rod,  and  sprinkling 
over  it,  when  heated,  sand.  After  being  again  heated,  it 
is  drawn  out  into  a  bar  by  means  of  a  tilt  hammer,  viz., 
a  large  hammer,  which  works  by  steam  or  water  power. 
Repeated  heatings  not  unfrequently  transpose  the  con- 
verted steel  into  its  original  state  of  iron. 

Cast-steel  is  produced  by  melting  blister-steel  in  cruci- 
bles, which  is  done  after  the  manner  of  the  brass-founder, 
in  a  common-air  fiimaoe.  The  mouth  of  the  crucible  is 
covered ;  the  fuel  used  is  coke.  The  metal,  when  melted, 
is  poured  into  a  mould,  and  acquires  the  name  of  "  ingot 

Sheet-steel  is  produced  by  being  rolled  between  re- 
volving cylinders  of  metal. 

Hand-drawn,  means  rods  which  have  been  produced  by 
manual  labour,  in  opposition  to  those  formed  by  the  tilt 
hammer. — ^W.  C.  A.]

[After  the  weaving  of  woollen  doth,  the  small  fibres 
of  the  wool  of  which  it  is  made  are  raised  by  means  of 
teazle  heads,  or  wire  brushes;  as  a  oonsequenoe,  these 
fibres  present  irregularities  in  their  several  1f»^gthff,  to 
reduce  which  to  an  equal  or  uniform  sui&oe,  shears  were 
formerly  employed.  These  have  been  superseded  by  the 
application  of  a  spiral  cutting  cylinder,  which,  being 
fitted  with  the  necefisary  cutting  edges,  and  revolving 
rapidly  in  contact  with  the  cloth  to  be  cut,  and  which 
is  drawn  on  a  ledge,  speedily  imparts  to  it  the  reqidate

[The  use  of  a  ripping-saw  is  to  separate  the  fibres  of 
timber  by  eroding  a  portion  of  the  fibre  itself,  to  pre* 
serve  an  even  way,  and  as  an  alternative  to  splitting. 
The  crosscut-saw  separates  the  fibre  by  a  cut  trans- 
versely, and  effects  more  neatly  and  truly,  and  with  less 
waste,  what  might  be  done  with  an  axe;  it  cats  logs 
into  shorter  lengths,  as  the  pit-saw  slits  logs  into  boards. 

The  tooth  of  a  ripping-saw  is  more  or  less  hooked,  that 
of  the  pit-saw  being  shaped  something  like  the  upper 
mandible  of  a  parrot;  whilst  the  tooth  of  the  croesomt- 
saw  returns  firom  its  point  or  i^^wx  at  an  equal  aagift  on

both  adm  of  a  line  «t  ri^t  angles  to  the  edge  of  the 
bladie;  oooMquently  the  ripping-saw  bites  in  the  down- 
stroke  onlj,  iHiilst  the  crosscut-saw  can  cut  both  ways; 
and  it  does  so  when  worked  at  both  ends,  as  in  cutting 
logs  of  large  siies. 

TIm  saw  blade  is  commonly  thicker  at  the  serrated 
edge  than  at  the  back;  both  that  it  may  not  be  imneces- 
sarily  heaTy,  and  that  it  may  not  bind  in  the  cut  or  the 
kerf  (the  ripping-saw  makes  a  out,  the  crosscut-saw  a 
kerf),  though  this  latter  object  is  more  fiilly  provided  for 
by  the  setting  of  the  saw;  the  setting  being  the  bending 
outward  of  erery  tooth  alternately  on  one  side  and  on 
tlie  other,  to  such  an  extent  ss  the  nature  and  condition 
<^the  wood,  in  respect  of  woolliness  and  wetness,  or  their 
opposites,  may  render  a  wider  or  a  narrower  vpay  necessary 
or  sofflcient  for  the  free  psssage  of  the  blade  along  the 
cut  or  throi^  the  kerf. 

TsDon-Mtws  are  crosscut-saws  mainly,  and  as  their 
name  imports,  for  cutting  in  the  shoulders  to  tenons. 
Bat  these  are  shallow  cuts,  and  requiring  to  be  made 
with  neatness,  the  blade  is  made  rigid  by  a  back  which  is 
commonly  of  Inrass.  Narrow-bladed  saws,  for  cutting  in 
eurred  lines,  are  made  thicker  at  the  edge,  and  thinner 
at  the  back,  and  are  not  set.— W.  H.]

Specimen  of  registered  Venetian  chimney-top.  De- 
sij;ne<l  to  create  an  upwanl  draught,  and  to  jirevent 
<lowuwar(l  draught.  The  lower  courses  are  inteude<l  to 
give  a  direction  to  the  wind  impinging  against  them, 
which  pnxluces  an  upwanl  current,  and  the  top  courses 
intercept  and  break  the  force  of  all  wind  from  above, 
before  it  can  in  wiy  way  affect  the  flue. 

As  there  are  no  parts  of  this  chimney-top  where  soot 
can  hxlge,  it  will  always  bo  kept  clean  by  the  wind  blow- 
ing through  it.
